Immigration and Democracy

Chapter 7 considers the substance of immigration policy. It argues that the duty to protect refugees and other forcibly displaced migrants is a moral constraint on the state’s right to control immigration. The chapter examines the grounds of the obligation toward refugees, who should be regarded as a refugee, what the duty to assist refugees entails, how the duty should be shared among states, and what the limits on the duty to refugees might be. It concludes by considering some implications for contemporary policy toward refugees.

Keywords:   refugees, necessitous migrants, international refugee protection system, UNHCR, causal responsibility, remedial responsibility, humanitarian concern, nonrefoulement, integrative capabilities, refugee resettlement
